As excited as we are about the start of the 84th session, we’re equally pumped to roll out our brand new 84th Lege page — a one-stop shop for all of your Texas legislative needs that reflects our commitment to bringing you the state's most comprehensive and convenient coverage.
There’s our interactive bill tracker, of course, enhanced since the 83rd session with even easier ways to search for the legislation you care about. And we’re bringing back the LegeStream — live video feeds of the House and Senate each and every minute they’re in session.
But we’re going a step further this year. We’re using our reporters’ expertise to curate lists of the must-watch issues of the session across nearly a dozen different policy areas. And we’re tracking those issues as they evolve over the next five months, telling you what bills will affect the outcome and where they stand.
Curious what environmental regulations lawmakers have in their crosshairs? Neena Satija’s got a hot list for that. Want to know whether Texas will repeal in-state tuition for undocumented students? Reeve Hamilton has the latest developments and the legislation you should be watching. Any hot list, any issue — they’re all easily shareable across your social networks.
In addition to our new features, we’ve made some great upgrades to our old faithfuls: our legislative directory, our interactive office maps and our Ethics Explorer, which tracks the conflicts and interests of every Texas elected official.
Our new Lege page is still evolving and will be updated and improved as the session proceeds. See a bill or an issue that's missing? Want to suggest an additional feature? Email our crew of phenomenal developers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
